Looking west on May 7, 1927. Steel reinforcing rods are placed for battery A Imhoff tank bottoms at the West Side plant. The heavily reinforced tank bottoms acted like an undulating plane floating on the native soil. When finished, the top of the tank was several feet above the ground surface. (MWRD photo 13308)
